Different Measures to Control Marine Pollution

Knowing how to handle things and how to get things done is often very important. It’s also important to know the details of the best way to do this. But you cannot stop there, that alone is not enough. It can also be important to know exactly what NOT to do and what mistakes to avoid. One of the best ways to achieve this is to understand the mistakes made by others to avoid making the same mistakes.

This also applies to measures to control marine pollution. There are a few people out there who have been successful. You would rather be one of them than be one of those who make mistakes and fail. Below are the 3 most common mistakes people make with the measures taken to control marine pollution.

First and most important. The most important of all the measures that people forget and neglect is the most important of all the measures to be taken to control sea pollution. It is to prevent the discharge of untreated sewage into the sea around our coasts. This is important because the discharge of sewage onto beaches, which is difficult to avoid without these measures, not only harms the beach environment and locally marine life. It can cause stomach upsets and other infections to bathers. To avoid this problem, you need to stop all sewers that are draining untreated sewage and pump the sewage inland to treat it in sewage treatment works.

Second, not all boats are able to stop marine pollution, especially around busy ports, and this is where shipowners must take measures to keep the sewage they produce on board until it is pumped at a port location and also sent to a sewer. treatment jobs. This is a very important point because if this sewage is allowed to flow into ports, docks and estuaries it will destroy normal marine life. To avoid the dire consequences of this common mistake, you will need to build wastewater storage tanks on boats and ships and provide facilities for the discharge and treatment of this sewage at all ports.

And finally, it would be wrong to forget that in the sewage treatment works of the municipalities, measures should be taken to prevent the pollutants remaining in the rivers flowing into the sea after the sewage treatment, from causing marine pollution. This problem arises when old sewage treatment efforts have converted nitrogen to a much less harmful form of nitrate, but this nitrate is not removed before it is discharged into rivers. This is particularly a problem in estuaries where shellfish are harvested for human consumption as it may be a contributing factor to the production of algal blooms in estuaries. This will be avoided by taking measures to add an extra treatment step in sewage treatment works, which will convert nitrate to nitrogen and return it harmlessly to the atmosphere.

Study these marine pollution mistakes and avoid them carefully. Instead, stick to the suggestions above about getting it right. Much better results will then be your reward!
